Top Five Password Managers for Mobile and Web Users

Top Five Password Managers for Mobile and Web Users

I can attest that I have somewhere near 10 email address floating around the web, five of which I actively keep track of and actively use every day for emails. Each email having their own function, and with each one being found on at least three different clients, it’s more important than ever to keep the passwords varied in case of an email hack. However, it is very difficult to keep track of them. This is where password managers come in and save the day! Today, we will spotlight five of them.

KeePass

    The first application that we will talk about is the open-source KeePass password manager. If you aren’t familiar with what open-source is, open source software is where you have the ability to adjust the software for your own use, which is free for all to make use of.

    You don’t have to be tech savvy to make use of KeePass or any other open-source software, but it gives those who are knowledgable the resource to make it how they want it to. More specifically with KeePass, the software allows you to easily add in logging information through shortcuts on your keyboard.

    Along with drag-and-drop features, KeePass allows you to also have passwords automatically apply to forms. Available for most platforms, KeePass could be the password manager with the most flexibility that you are looking for.

    LastPass

      I love LastPass and have made use of it from time-to-time. The reason why I have taken a liking to LastPass is because it offers a wide range of features and functionality along with a free price tag. For those who are looking for additional functionality coupled with the willingness to pay a bit more will have the ability to do that as well.

      LastPass, available on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and other mobile platforms, makes it easy to ensure that you can easily fill forms and sign-in no matter what device or service you are on or using. I first came in contact with LastPass when looking for a service that allowed me to create a one-time online password on a service that was shared. LastPass made this seamless and easy to do.

      Let’s just say you can’t resist the option and want to plunge into premium LastPass, no problem. The $1 a month premium version allows you to do more, like no ads, priority support, and even thumb-drive authentication.

      1Password

        1Password is one of the best password managers on this list, however this is also coupled with the fact that it is the most expensive. If you are serious about password management, 1Password is the only password manager you’ll need.

        The $50 program is $10 for mobile users, $15 for iPad users. The software allows you to ensure that your passwords are synced across the connected devices, organized in a way that makes it easy to find and easier to automatically apply to the website that you are using. However, 1Password isn’t just about protecting your online life, the software also allows you to ensure that the things you are making digital (documents and scans) are all protected from prying eyes.

        Again, I must reiterate that it’s great but expensive. If you are willing to put in the money, then do it. But it’s important to add that the benefits don’t pay off when compared to the $1 a month LastPass, for example, until about four years (when the monthly $1 fee begins to exceed the $50 one-time fee).

        SplashID

          If you haven’t caught on yet, you may need to be reminded that SplashID, like a majority of the others on the list, is cross-platform supported on Windows, iOS, Mac, etc. The password manager has all of the features we expect from a password manager, like automatic password generation, security protection, and more.

          You also have features like form completions. SplashID is a tried and tested password manager, possibly the oldest on this list (LastPass has the award for the youngest). Plus, along with a paid $20 version (after your trial period), and an iPhone version for $10, you also have a free iOS version available as well. This could be attractive to many users who are looking to find the balance of quality and affordability in one program.

          Roboform

            The last program we will go over is Roboform. This program is an ode to our Windows readers out there. This program is available only on Windows. For this reason, the program hasn’t received many visual or performance updates lately. However, this doesn’t mean that the program is lacking, it’s actually the contrary.

            Roboform is a program that users will find themselves getting acquainted with the software in no time. Despite being focused mainly for the web, Roboform does a nice job at form completion as well as password generation.  Plus, Roboform allows you to easily make a printed form of your passwords that can be held for safe keeping.

            Roboform is available for free, however there’s a $29.95 pro version available as well.

                                Sometimes people do not need a heap of calendar applications. They would prefer to have one efficient calendar widget.

                                Calendar Widget: Month perfectly fills this niche and meets all the needs of a modern user. It has some features of an ordinary calendar, but the real great thing about this software is that it has 80 or more themes in its library.

                                The design of the application is great; the themes are perfectly tuned. There are options for almost any theme of your smartphone. The only drawback is the fact that the widget memory is not too large, and you should be ready for it.

                                This simple calendar widget was created in the image and semblance of widgets from Yahoo. The widget window displays one calendar month with the ability to go to the previous and move to the next one.

                                If you need a simple and affordable calendar to plan your tasks and affairs for one month, this widget is ideal for you. Calendar Widget: Month is so simple that it does not even have Google Calendar support.

                                At the moment, it does not have the function of connecting any third-party calendars and services. Developers allow the possibility of introducing support for Google service as an addition to the widget, if users request to have this opportunity.
